CAST Programmable Multi-Sensor Fire Detector

  • A high-quality programmable multi-sensor fire detector for use with C-TEC’s XFP & ZFP ‘CAST’ protocol Addressable Fire Panels.
  • Certified to EN54-5, 7 and 17 by the LPCB.
  • Onboard programmable heat & smoke sensors make it deal for detecting a wide range of fires whilst also reducing false alarms.
  • Multiple sensitivity/sensor settings (see Operating Modes for details).
  • Smart algorithms help reduce false alarms.
  • Drift compensation functionality.
  • Short circuit loop isolator.
  • Includes two 8mm x 2mm ultra-bright red LED indicating strips.
  • Different sensitivities can be selected for different times of the day (day/night, building occupied/unoccupied etc).
  • Programmable multi-function status LED.
  • Compatible with C-TEC’s CA408 CAST base c/w integrated locking mechanism & ID tag.


Approvals/certifications Certified to EN54-5, 7 and 17 by the LPCB.
Compatibility Compatible with C-TEC’s XFP/ZFP CAST Protocol Addressable Fire Panels.
Type Muti-Sensor.
Application/operation As well as operating independently, the CA414’s smoke & heat sensors combine to produce a sensitive response to freely burning fires, e.g. when a rise in heat is detected, its smoke response level reduces for improved detection and reduced false alarms.
Application temperature 25°C typical, 50°C max (in Class A1R and Class A2 mode); 40°C typical, 65°C max (in Class B mode). In A1R mode the detector will also trigger if it detects a sudden rise in temperature.
Static response temperature 54°C min, 65°C max (In Class A1R and Class A2 mode); 69°C typical, 85°C max (in Class B mode).
Sensitivity Option to set 5 different sensitvity levels at the fire panel. See Operation Modes tab below for details.
Supply wiring 2-wire, polarity sensitive.
Supply/operating voltage 27 to 40V DC.
Quiescent current 60µA @ 24V.
Alarm current 6mA (LEDs illuminated).
Indicators 2 LED indicator strips emitting red light when in alarm offering 360º visibility. Optional remote LED.
Connections Via CA408 base: 1 +Ve IN (analogue swich); 2 +Ve OUT (analogue switch); 3 Remote LED +Ve; 4 0V; 5 0V; 6 Screen; 7 Screen.
Product dimensions (mm) 102.2mm diameter x 37mm deep (detector only); 102.2mm diameter x 57.5mm deep (detector in base).
Construction & finish White polycarbonate casing rated to UL94 V-2 with nylon parts.
IP Rating IP42.
Weight 99g (not in base); 154g (in base).
Operating conditions/temperature -20ºC to +85ºC.
Notes Requires a CA408 CAST base. CA408R relay base also available.
